I found this book fascinating and an interesting way of finding out about Abraham Lincoln without having to read what are usually heavy-duty biographies. Mrs. Lincoln was indeed a colorful character and although history judged her harshly, Catherine Clinton does an excellent job of putting many accusations in their appropriate context. Mrs. Lincoln did indeed appear to love her husband and was a support to him until his untimely death at the hands of a murderer. Losing a husband and three sons (only one survived) is enough to send anyone to the brink of insanity. Highly recommended.
